It would be an exaggeration to call Three Blind Mice a hidden gem, but we certainly wish it was. Sure, there's no sign outside and all you see is a tiny doorway with rickety steps leading into the unknown. At 8.30 it was still oddly very quiet, but by 11.30pm the place was heaving. Once the Eastern European styled Smersh bar, their legacy is slowly being removed but some still remains, such as the old German recipes pasted onto the walls and the interesting choice of Vodkas. Regardless of the decoration though, this tiny three roomed basement bar effortlessly offers what some other nearby places only dream of - atmosphere. With peeling paint, low ceilings and moody lighting, it almost feels as if you're in a Parisian back street den if iniquity. Anyway, the people behind the bar were courteous and friendly and on our visit the music pretty eclectic (with a slight leaning towards reggae, it seemed). A good place to spend a weekend night.
